Featured Students: Bilingual Seal Recipients

April 29, 2019 - On Thursday, Apr. 24, twenty-eight Hillsboro High School seniors celebrated along with their families, staff and community partners their accomplishment of earning the HSD Bilingual Seal and State Seal of Biliteracy. In order to earn the seal, students demonstrated proficiency in English and Spanish through a rigorous portfolio process involving reading, writing, speaking and listening. Bilingual Seal recipients had the pleasure of hearing from one of their own, Belen Tencos Mendoza, a 2016 Bilingual Seal recipient who is getting ready to start her teaching career in Hillsboro next year. Following the keynote, students were divided into smaller panels where they were asked questions related to the impact of bilingual education in their lives. Sincerest congratulations to each of you!
